When you find your lovable, if uninvited, friends clamouring for some snacks over a good chat at home, toss our Ready to Cook Oriental Basil Chicken into a frying pan and a luxurious evening snack is ready before you could finish rolling up your sleeves.
Remove the Oriental Basil Chicken from the package and place it in a bowl.
Toss and massage the chicken to refresh the marinade.
Pan-fry On The Hob (Time: 10 minutes)
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a non-stick frying pan. Spread out the pieces of chicken on the surface of the pan and let them sear on both sides, flipping occasionally.
Sprinkle water into the pan occasionally to retain the moisture, and put a lid on so the moisture doesn’t escape.
When the chicken is cooked, remove it on a plate and then deglaze the pan by adding some water to it and gently scraping the surface. You’ll be left with a thick, shiny sauce that you can use to coat the pieces of chicken before serving.
Baking in an Oven (Time: 20 - 25 minutes)
Preheat your oven to 165℃.
Spread out the pieces of chicken on a baking tray. Place it in the oven for 7-8 minutes, flip, and then cook for a further 8-10 minutes.
Remove the cooked chicken on a plate and deglaze the baking tray by sprinkling some water on it and gently scraping the surface. You’ll be left with a thick, shiny sauce that you can use to coat the pieces of chicken before serving.
Let the chicken rest for a few minutes once cooked.
Serve with your favourite fried rice or hakka noodles, or enjoy as is.
